Wickett, Karen M. (2009-02-08)The Semantic Web promises powerful new functionality for bibliographic databases by combining bibliographic informa- tion with knowledge about the world. However, the kinds of representation that are possible in Semantic ...
Wickett, Karen M.; Isaac, Antoine; Fenlon, Katrina S.; Doerr, Martin; Meghini, Carlo; Palmer, Carole L.; Jett, Jacob (Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship, 2013-10)This report presents the results of a collaboration between members of the IMLS Digital Collections and Content (DCC) project and developers of the Europeana Data Model (EDM) to construct a formal extension of EDM that ...
Thomer, Andrea K.; Palmer, Carole L.; Fouke, Bruce W.; Rodman, Ann; Choudhury, G. Sayeed; Baker, Karen S.; Asangba, Abigail E.; Wickett, Karen M.; DiLauro, Timothy; Varvel, Virgil E., Jr. (2013-12)The continuing proliferation of geological and biological data generated at scientifically significant sites (such as hot springs, coral reefs, volcanic fields and other unique, data-rich locales) has created a clear need ...
Renear, Allen H.; Wickett, Karen M.; Urban, Richard J.; Dubin, David (ACM, 2008-06-17)Formalizing collection-level/item-level metadata relationships encounters the problem of trivial satisfaction. We offer a solution related to current work in IR and ontology evaluation.
Wickett, Karen M.; Renear, Allen H.; Urban, Richard J. (2010-10-25)Collections of artifacts, images, texts, and other cultural objects are not arbitrary aggregations, but are designed to support specific research and scholarly activities. Collection-level metadata directly supports this ...
Wickett, Karen M.; Urban, Richard J.; Renear, Allen H. (2010-10-25)Slides from a presentation at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Information Science and Technology.
Palmer, Carole L.; Varvel, Virgil E., Jr.; Thomer, Andrea K.; Baker, Karen S.; Wickett, Karen M.; Fouke, Bruce W.; Asangba, Abigail E.; Rodman, Ann; Choudhury, G. Sayeed; DiLauro, Tim (2013-04)The Site-Based Data Curation (SBDC) project at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is developing a framework of policies and processes for the curation of research data generated at scientifically significant ...
Renear, Allen H.; Urban, Richard J.; Wickett, Karen M.; Palmer, Carole L.; Dubin, David (2008-06)Many aspects of managing collection/item metadata relationships are critical to sustaining collection value over time.

Urban, Richard J.; Wickett, Karen M.; Renear, Allen H. (2010-07-29)This paper describes the development of a testbed for formalized categories of collection-item metadata relationships. Because these categories are characterized using logic-based formal languages and are most naturally ...
What Dataset Descriptions Actually Describe: Using the Systematic Assertion Model to Connect Theory and Practice Wickett, Karen M.; Thomer, Andrea; Sacchi, Simone; Baker, Karen S.; Dubin, David (American Society for Information Science and Technology, 2012-03-22)Scientific data is encoded and described with the aim of supporting retrieval, meaningful interpretation and reuse. Encoding standards for datasets like FGDC, DwC, EML typically include tagged metadata elements along with ...
Renear, Allen H.; Dubin, David; Wickett, Karen M. (ASIST, Wiley, 2008)Formal accounts of digital objects often characterize them as bit strings, graphs, sets, tuples, relations, or other similar constructs from discrete mathematics. Such characterizations imply that these objects cannot ...
